“North Korea and Generation Z seem to have one common opinion: skinny jeans have got to go. The secretive Asian nation has reportedly instituted a ban on Western fashion trends including mullets, certain body piercings, and skinny jeans in a self-proclaimed ‘war on capitalism.’ … The new anti-Western fashion regulations appear to also coincide with Kim Jong Un’s recent vow to fight an ‘uncompromising struggle’ against anti-socialism amid economic sanctions from the United States, as reported by state media on Thursday. ‘The struggle against the anti-socialist and non-socialist practices is a do-or-die battle to defend the working-class purity and lifeline of our style of socialism,’ Kim reportedly said.” (05/27/21)
